Carelink provides professional support and care services for adults who have experienced abuse perpetrated by Catholic clergy and other individuals appointed by Catholic church entities.
We acknowledge and express our deep sorrow for the betrayal and hurt caused by abuse in all its forms. The Church’s neglect of the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of children, young people and adults conflicts with its mission of love and care for the innocent and vulnerable.
The impact of abuse can be devastating, complex and profound both on the individual, their loved ones and the community. In recognition of this, Carelink provides a wellbeing model of support underpinned by Trauma-Informed Care and Practice to adults who have experienced abuse in addition to their families.
Our holistic care model is recovery focused and personalised to your individual needs. We offer a 'Care Coordination' service with professionally trained, warm and welcoming staff with a dedicated Care Coordinator allocated to each client. Our Care Coordinators can provide you with information on accessing our services and the range of funded supports on offer both internally and by connections to external professionals. You can also find information on this site under 'support services available' or by downloading our comprehensive framework.
